    2. Amazing projects around the year, I'm sure you are going to surprise us with all the 2013 projetcs. My prediction of the hotest trend for 2013 maybe heagons... because I saw the sneak peeks of the Hero arts catalog for CHA winter and there are some amazing hexagons stamps.

      ReplyDelete
    3. Wow! What super duper great projects! I can't wait to make more of them. I predict that paper-piecing will come back strong in 2013, but using our electronic cutters instead of scissors.

    4. I love all the tutorials posted above!!I agree with Miriam, I think glitter is gonna be "IT" in 2013!!

      ReplyDelete
    6. I think next year we are going to see more fun borders and fun color combinations!

    10. I think the hottest scrapbooking trend can be badges and gems, I'm not sure ^_^

      ReplyDelete
    11. I think one of the trends will be more use of the Washi Tape that is out there. There are so many ways to use it and Pinterest will mostly keep our interest in it for scrapbooking. Another trend that I think I am seeing is the use of a pale turquoise in most of the lines. In the last month I have also seen 2 new paper companies that I haven't seen around before. So therefore I hope the prediction that scrapbooking will be taking an uphill swing will come true.

      ReplyDelete
    12. Some of my favorite posts were your favorite too! Lots of great ideas! I think washi tape is going to continue to be hot in 2013!

      ReplyDelete
    13. Love the projects and have done a few myself thats to the great tutorials! Prediction for 2013 is anyone's guess, but I hope to see more background stamping on layouts, brighter color combinations, and Washi Tape, cause I LOVE my Washi!!

      ReplyDelete
    14. Ooh...hard to predict. I think stitching will continue to be strong, lots of clean designs and small patterns? Maybe that's just what I want. Hmmm.

    17. Wow - hard to guess - but I think wood veneer is going to continue to be hot and project life is going to be even more popular. And vellum will continue its comeback.

      ReplyDelete
    18. I like all your projects! About the prediction for 2013 I think that washi tape will keep being strong as well as the Project Life stuff! Thanks for the chance to win and Happy Holidays!!

      ReplyDelete
    19. One thing I've started seeing on more blogs lately is embroidering with yarn on paper - I can see that making it's way into scrapbooking more. Or maybe I just follow too many knitting/yarn blogs...

      ReplyDelete
    20. I want to learn all these projects, will put time aside to look at each & every one. Predictions are hard but more 'hand made' look like stitching, loads of shapes (hexagonal etc) with masks & embossing folders, backgrounds with more use of different mediums & much more.. :)

      ReplyDelete
    21. Let's see...I'm going to say the neon trend will continue to grow, even though I'm not that big a fan of it.

      ReplyDelete
    22. I think that Neon will hit scrapping like it hit fashion and color blocking-kepping it all simple, with clean lines.

      ReplyDelete
    23. so inspiring, thank you for all of your wonderful ideas! I think beads and glitter might start to take off more!!

      ReplyDelete
    24. I think the Project Life concept is going to continue to grow with a lot more companies doing their own versions of it. :)

      ReplyDelete
    25. I agree with some of the other comments - I've been seeing glitter trending lately. I also think the distressed, shabby look is becoming very popular. (Here's hoping the 2012 neon trend ends soon - ugh)

      ReplyDelete
    26. I don't know what the hottest scrapbooking trend will be because I am so far behind the times! Hopefully it's simplicity!

      ReplyDelete
    27. Love all the projects. Couldn't even begin to imagine what will be coming next - but I know it will be good!!

      ReplyDelete
    28. I also think Project Life is going to continue to grow, and will be the hottest trend.

      ReplyDelete
    29. I am going to guess that it will be hexagons!
      Thanks so much for the chance to win!

      ReplyDelete
    30. Thanks for sharing the links to these amazing projects! I look forward to spending some time checking them all out!!

      I wish I could make a prediction on the next trend but I am so not good at that stuff. I am terribly about keeping up with trends. I just go with what I like - trendy or not.

      ReplyDelete
    31. I think mason jars will continue to be hot next year.

      ReplyDelete
    32. just when I think I am done - I find fabulous inspiration for more Christmas goodies here. Thanks for all the eye candy xx Michelle

      ReplyDelete
    33. I'm horrible at predictions... I'm going with hexagons, and brighter colors??

      ReplyDelete
    34. I haven't got a clue! I'm more of a follower than a trendsetter...so I guess I'll just go with the first few comments and say glitter~

      ReplyDelete
    35. I think the hottest trend will be the products you hinted at. Washi is always good :)

      ReplyDelete
    36. I have no idea about the next trend, but I think it will have something to do w/different shapes...The hexagons went over big, so I'm thinking in that general direction...

      ReplyDelete
    37. I have love following you on Facebook. All of your projects have been fun. I think in the next year we will see many new diecuts and perhaps new types of diecut machine.

      ReplyDelete
    38. My prediction....washi tape! Love it!

      ReplyDelete
    39. Love those projects!! I think more shapes are going to be hot next year.

      ReplyDelete
    40. Hmmm, I think basic shapes are going to keep playing a big role and washi will get hotter before it's a not-er. Oh I like the glitter comment, more glitter would be awesome!

      ReplyDelete
    41. I think feathers might be a new trend. Thanks

      ReplyDelete
    42. I'm thinking (or hoping at least!) that Diamond Wrap will be the hottest new trend next year!

      ReplyDelete
    43. You've inspired me to give the paper beads another try after having made them with my daughter years and years ago! Love to recycle paper in all forms! As for hottest trends, I am seeing a real move toward simplicity in both card making and scrapbooking. I think that the Project life format will continue to be big and that embellishments will be bold and simple..with pops of color

      ReplyDelete
    44. I love any project using paper!! Thanks for the tutorials. They really help and inspire me. I predict that bright colors and lots of flowers will be part of the trends for 2013.

      ReplyDelete
    45. Love the recap, so much inspiration !! I am thinking more of the PL format with the EP launch of Photo Freedom, going to see more simple designs to get the memories captured for everyone... more badges... maybe some gel type products like the new geleez craze for kids???

      ReplyDelete
    46. I'm thinking that homemade twine (twisting different colors of embroidery floss together will be hot. Maybe?

      ReplyDelete
    47. Oh, those wedding place cards are SO fabulous!! Love the sweet little paper flowers! As for the newest trend, I'm not sure but I am thinking that handmade flowers (maybe made of fabric?) might be big for Spring.

      ReplyDelete
    48. it has been a fun Christmas countdown and a fun 2012!! Thanks Lowri.
      the map folded flowers are genius. i have tons of maps after a recent trip. now i know what to do with them ;)

      i predict the scrapbooking trend for 2013 would be simple and clean designs. ;) let's see if my prediction comes true.

      ReplyDelete
    49. I've enjoyed your Christmas countdown. I just found your site a few months ago and it is neat to see all of your projects.

      ReplyDelete
    50. Such wonderful inspiration!!! I think next year's trends will be more systems which combine photo albums and scrapping. I always enjoy seeing all the new trends even if I am way far behind in using them!

      ReplyDelete
    51. I love these projects! As for upcoming trends - I'm not sure, but can't wait to see!

      ReplyDelete
    52. I think we're going to be seeing a lot more of the clean and simple style and papers in the new year.

      ReplyDelete
    53. I think chevrons and washi tape will continue to be big...I think we may go back to multipage multiphoto layouts...at least I hope so!

      ReplyDelete
    54. Predictions.. hm.. I think we will see more masks and misting, more resist product a la Heidi Swapp and Pink Paislee... bolder colors and new flower styles, and even more washi styles and wash type products.

      ReplyDelete
    55. I think more handmade projects would be trend in 2013 and always. Thanks for the chance to win.

      ReplyDelete
    56. The increased use of divided page sleeves (like Project Life pages) will continue

      ReplyDelete
    57. Scrapbooks are becoming more finished. Pages are already divided. A lot of embellishing seems to be done already. That would be a benefit for me. I'm not much of a scrapbooker. I'd rather make greeting cards.

      ReplyDelete
    58. Great giveaway and I think there will be more hexagons, hot air baloons in 2013!!

      ReplyDelete
    59. I'm sure there will be lots of new trends in 2013 that will surprise us! But I will say washi tape will be the the hottest trend! Can't wait to see all the new styles and colors to come.

      ReplyDelete
    60. Great giveaway! It isn't easy to predict but I hope for pastel colors and Washi tape. Thank you!

      ReplyDelete
    61. Wow! This would be an awesome birthday gift, as today is my birthday! I think the trends might include chalk and eyelets, with wider Washi tape.

      ReplyDelete
    62. Your mini books are the best and very inspiring!
      I would not be surprised if the Romantic style (a lot on a page) will give room to a more simple and straight forward scrapbook style.
      But maybe this is just wishful thinking ;)
      Thanks for the give-aways and wish you and your great holly-days.
      Kind regards, Corina

      ReplyDelete
    63. Love your projects. Especially because most of them are useful. I've allready did one of them and gave it for my mother birthday- and she was so happy.
      About the trends- I hope the will go that way (useful pretty things)

      ReplyDelete
    64. my prediction for next year is more vintage 50's and bold colors, but not your regular red, blue and green. thank goodness the moustaches didn't stick around long! and too bad that there was never a hexagon punch!

      ReplyDelete
    65. I predict more "Flair" & more mini anything~lol! Luv all those projects:) Thanx 4 the giveaways! ~prhmangel(at)gmail(dot)com

      ReplyDelete
    66. Oh my! I'm not good at predicting stuff... Perhaps circles will make a comeback or more and more doilies (i wish!) :) Thanks for the chance to win!

      ReplyDelete
    67. Love the paper set! As for the new trend washi tape is gaining popularity. For card making label cut outs will be big in different shapes and designs. Also little paper banners with messages and small paper pinwheels.

      ReplyDelete
    68. Love all the projects posted on this page :) if only I could predict the next trend... I would take pics accordingly haha

      ReplyDelete
    69. Really wonderful projects all of these, some of my favourites there too. :)
      My prediction.... maybe after all these hexagons, triangles etc. more natural shapes will come fashionable? I'm voting for the circle shapes! :D

      ReplyDelete
    70. Hmmmm I think hexagons will hang around as will the banners and flags, maybe more mists and I think the mixed media trend will find its way onto scrapbook LO's more often.

      ReplyDelete
    71. I think burlap and twine might crossover from decorating into scrapbooking. Love your projects!

      ReplyDelete
    72. It's been such fun so far ... what an amazing year of creativity! I think canvas and lace will be the next hot trend for 2013.

      ReplyDelete
    73. I'm not a good trend guesser but I'm gonna say fun vibrant colors?

      ReplyDelete
    74. Wow! That's a tough one. I'm thinking the punch in the middle of the page or all over the page will become big or bigger. As you can see, this is not my forte'.

      ReplyDelete
    75. wow love all of the tutorials! I need to try to make those beads for a Christmas gift thanks for the how to!

      ReplyDelete
      Replies
      1. Oh and my prediction is that it will be more re purposing things to use with papercrafting.

        Delete
    76. I have no idea what the next trend will be but if I had to guess I would have to say more retro 80s patterns and trends ;)

      ReplyDelete
    77. So many of those projects I did and really enjoyed making them! Trend for 2013? Hmmmm I'm thinking fiber is going to be big with paper - crocheting or knitting somehow incorporated with cards, LO etc.

      ReplyDelete
    78. I'm guessing that we'll see a return to pale pastels, and I think the hot "animal" will be rabbits.

      ReplyDelete
    79. I NEED this! ;) I am such a paper crafter. This would be put to great use.

      ReplyDelete
    80. I think there'll be more mixed media journaling. Thanks for the great gift ideas!

      ReplyDelete
    81. Foxes and stripes! This has been a fun few days, enjoyed all the posts!

      ReplyDelete
    82. all the projects were wonderful and inspiring. great wrapup post. thanks for the chance to win.

      ReplyDelete
    83. At this moment in time Im thinking it might be making your own embellishments in general.

      ReplyDelete
    84. I predict it will be back to retro style.

      ReplyDelete
    85. I have no idea what the trend will be for next year but I love to see more companies coming out with the items that fit in the 4 x 6 and 3 x 4 pockets pages.

      ReplyDelete
    86. I love your projects, and can't wait to try those flowers. I think there will be a lot more of the easy scrapping in the photo pockets. I don't know what it's called, but Echo Park is putting it out.

      ReplyDelete
    87. I made a 52 reasons I love you mini, for my mother's birthday, she was so happy ! I love it, easy and fast to do even with a lot of cards ;)
